Ok, between covid cabin fever and winter snowstorms, I am SO over it. To keep myself sane, I’m thinking green!

As in this kind of green. I’m dreaming and planning for my summer gardens.

Over the years, my gardens have shrunk in size for lack of time to keep up with them.

I started going back to raised beds this past summer. For now, this is the perfect, manageable size.

But I’m thinking of going one step further. I’ve been looking into setting up tall raised beds for two reasons. 1. It’s easier on the back. 2. Keeps rabbits and other small ground-dwelling critters out. I’ve given up on trying to keep deer out, so I just grow stuff they don’t like to eat now. It’s a workable truce.

I thought about building my own galvanized beds (if you’re interested here are some instructions), but I’m not looking to create more jobs for myself, so I’m looking at getting a couple of these Birdies Garden Products
